An ex vivo, vagally innervated, lung preparation was used to address the hypothesis that vagal C-fibres comprise at least two distinct phenotypes. Histological and extracellular electrophysiological experiments revealed that vagal C-fibres innervating the pulmonary system are derived from cell bodies situated in two distinct vagal sensory ganglia. The jugular (superior) ganglion neurones project C-fibres to both the extrapulmonary airways (larynx, trachea and bronchus) and the lung parenchymal… CONTINUE READING

The data support the hypothesis that both neural crest - derived neurones ( jugular ganglia ) and placode - derived neurones ( nodose ganglia ) project C - fibres in the vagus , and that these two C - fibre populations represent distinct phenotypes .
